Why would you flash the chip in the first place? It sounds like you either got a bad chip or a bad soldering job. I'd vote to inspect the soldering job first.
With stock BIOS, I run a 250 GB drive, IGR, and have never had a single problem with any game. Though I have never used any other BIOS, I have never had a single problem. I've read 1000s of posts from others with problems who have to flash from one mediocre BIOS to another to try to fix their problems. Though I have no other experience to back it up (aside from 4 buddies with problem-free AppleX V chips) I'd say the AppleX V BIOS is the best out there. And for $20, it's the best chip. The only thing it lacks is multiple spots for BIOS. But, if you have one good one in your chip, you don't need to store 4 crappy ones.
